Bodywork with Janine Oshiro
The Sarga technique allows you to discover the joys of a deeply relaxing massage based on the therapist’s footwork. Clients describe Sarga as “slow, deep, super relaxing,” and “a fluid experience from beginning to end.”
This traditional Hawaiian massage uses rhythmic movements to promote deep healing with the muscles. There are many styles of lomilomi but most affirm that prayer and loving touch are essential components. All of our lomilomi practitioners come from traditional Hawaiian lineages of training.
This Swedish style massage uses classic effleurage and petrissage techniques to improve circulation and relax muscles. Long, short and percussive strokes are also applied with the goal of free movement for the joints.
Enjoy side by side massages with your loved-one, delivered by a pair of our highly skilled therapists in our beautifully appointed studio. Double the bliss!
Swedish or Lomilomi
On Janine Oshiro’s massage table you find a healing space to make a deep connection with yourself and the unfolding of your body’s wisdom. Through her focused presence and intentional touch, you experience relaxation, release, ease of movement, and new patterns.
Janine appreciates her many teachers, especially Mālia Helelā, who shares the gift of lomilomi with a kind and generous heart; and Myra Lewin, who has guided her in the practices of meditation, pranayama, marma bodywork, and silence.
A graduate of Mililani High School, Janine studied visual art and poetry at Whitworth University, Portland State University, and the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop. She worked for many years as a community college English professor before enrolling in Kapiʻolani Community College’s massage therapy program in 2016 and earning her state license in 2018.
Janine has authored the poetry book Pier, won the Kundiman Poetry Prize published by Alice James Books, and received an Elliot Cades Award for Literature in Hawaiʻi for an emerging writer. She devotes herself to the transformative power of words, touch, silence, and movement.
